‘It’s going to be a great time!’ James Haskell admits that he is “terrified” before the first night of him looking after his daughter Bodhi alone while his wife Chloe Madeley enjoys a night out.
He welcomed his first child with wife Chloe Madeley in August.
And James Haskell has admitted he is “terrified” ahead of his first night looking after his 7-month-old daughter Bodhi alone while his partner enjoys a night out.
The 37-year-old former rugby union player said it would be “a great time” while joking that he could not call his wife for help and “give in to the enemy”.
Speaking on Thursday’s episode of Jeremy Vine, he explained: “I’ve taken care of her, but it’s the first night just me and her.” It will be scary.
‘I don’t think I’m seeing anything other than her being like, ‘Are you still breathing? Are you still breathing?’

James continued: ‘And Chloe will be out. It will be a great time!
‘I do all the night feedings and I take her in the morning, that’s fine, but when she’s not home I can’t say, ‘Baby, what’s going on here?’
Host Jeremy exclaimed, ‘You can’t call Chloe!’
‘Can’t. I would never surrender to the enemy,’ James replied.
But then he added: “If I’m out and DJing and having fun, Chloe will call me to remind me what I’m missing and how bad it is at home and I should feel guilty about that.”
It comes after Chloe revealed that she relies on her parents Richard and Judy on “bad days” as a first-time mother to their young daughter Bodhi.
The personal trainer, who showed off her abs in new snaps on Wednesday, admitted she felt “quite low” in her third trimester.
Chloe explained in a new podcast that she struggled living in the Midlands while her parents were in London during her pregnancy, but things are easier now that they’ve moved south.

Family: James continued: ‘And Chloe will be out. It will be a great time!
Speaking on the Midwife Pip podcast, Chloe said of the final stages of her pregnancy: “I felt very isolated, very alone. I was pretty depressed and pretty scared.
“I also don’t think it helped at the time that James and I were still living in the Midlands and I was away from all my friends and family. Whereas now if I have a bad day… I just get in the car and go to my parents’.
Chloe described how her parents are now very helpful, saying that she is able to “catch her breath”.
She explained: “Just being in my family home with my mom and dad, who are also obsessed with Bodhi, I just catch my breath and come back to earth.” I reconnect with everything I love about my life.
